Pretty Postage In Colors

I didn't realize how much I REALLY love the 2011-13 In Colors until I just pulled them out and put them together.  This is one of April's card class cards, using Pretty Postage stamp set, In Colors: Calypso Coral, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade in addition to Whisper White and Crumb Cake.  We ran the Island Indigo through the Big Shot using the Houndstooth embossing folder and once again, those Itty Bitty punches showed up again! Added a few little Basic Pearls to the centers and lifted the edges of the flowers for some depth.  I also have under used the Postage Punch, but it's going to see lots of time this year...Anyway, stayed tuned for some more April class cards.

Owl Punch Baby Dress

I have to say that the Owl Punch is one of THE most versatile punches out there from SU! I just love that if you look at it a few times, you see something different every time.  Well, I wanted to show the Twitterpatted DSP to all of my customers before it was gone(and just to let you know...YOU CAN STILL ORDER IT!) and again, wanted to show another great idea for the owl punch.  I used the Blushing Bride Ruffled Ribbon, for the little pleat at the bottom of the dress.  Now, I know looking at the hanger, it's a little out of proportion to the dress, but it looked better to have it then to not.  It comes from the stamps set Little Additions.  We used Cherry Cobbler, Basic Gray, and Blushing Bride CS and Basic Gray ink.  We used the "welcome baby" from Petite Pairs stamp set.
